• 12 Days of Christmas Skincare Specials! CoolSculpting is HERE!!! Our Hard Working Liver

    The 12 Days of Christmas

    Over the next two and a half weeks (the 12 business days) we will be offering a new skincare special each day. The specials must be purchased on that day only. On the twelfth day we will have our own present to everyone who has purchased something during the 12 days. Look for our daily email with the special!

    CoolSculpting is a technique to freeze unwanted fat from a variety of areas. With our “Dual Sculpting” (two machines) the time is halved and flanks or abdomen can often be done in under an hour. The most common areas are abdomen, flank/side, thighs, hips, arms, back, under buttock, bra line and under the chin. The fat cells are permanently removed. Best of all is that there is almost no downtime so you can resume your activities the same day!

    Fillers are $100 off each syringe for December!
    Fillers are $100 off our regular price. Juvederm is the most common filler for “raising” facial wrinkles. The most common area is the line between the nose and corner of mouth followed by the corner of the mouth going down to the chin. Often ONE syringe can improve both these areas. Voluma is an injectable filler that augments and lifts the cheeks. This can last up to two years. Volbella and Vollure subtly augment the lips and improve perioral wrinkles with long lasting effects.

    Our Hardest Working Organ Right Now is the LIVER

    Nearly every bite you take is managed by the liver. While it’s one of your largest organs, the stuff you do can overwhelm it. Here’s how it happens.

    At the first sip of booze…
    The liver transforms the alcohol into harmless water and carbon dioxide which you pee out or exhale. It holds onto the antioxidants in wine or carbs in beer. But the metabolism of alcohol creates fatty acids which get stored as triglycerides until you use them up unless…

    A few more drinks…
    Binging causes shock to the liver. It creates more triglycerides until the pile gets too large to “burn later”. This causes inflammation and eventually scarring which can lead to cirrhosis.

    Now, Some Food, A Lot of Food.
    You don’t need to drink alcohol to mess up your liver. Some seasonal foods and overindulging can lead to a nonalcoholic fatty liver.

    (Did You Know? Your liver does more than 300 jobs.)

    How to Hit “Restore”.
    Your liver can actually regenerate if it’s not permanently scarred. A month or two without any alcohol can reduce the fat storage and help tame inflammation. Cleaning up your diet and losing some weight can also reduce fat in your liver by up to 30%.

    LA DOLCE VITA:

    I recently had one of those “big” birthdays. While it was a great day with family and friends I’m glad it’s over and I no longer have to look forward to it. As Ringo Starr said, “I’ve learned not to be too hard on myself. I’m still a work in progress.”

    TESTIMONIAL:

    “Wonderful experience! I felt at ease before my surgery from the staff and Dr. McKenna.” -Carol
